The California Surf Museum is proud to highlight surf film-making in its non-traditional approach. Our final Big Wednesday film night will feature two 20 minute segments of the latest and greatest Korduroy.TV clips, Q&A with the filmmakers and staff, and interesting props and cameras from the Korduroy crew. Learn about their recent Kick-starter campaign, their company ethos, and how they are pushing surf content in a new direction.
With the advent of iPhones, cheap HD cameras, and the GoPro, a whole legion of film-makers have entered the scene. Combine their work with the long-established tradition of independent film-making in the surf world and you have a new golden age of the surf film.
Korduroy.TV is at the epicenter of this movement and growing fast. This should be the highlight of the Big Wednesday screening series.
International Surfing Day is tomorrow, Wednesday June 20, and I hope you can get in the water. If not, don’t worry because most of the events are this weekend.
Still, for Wednesday, Surfrider has lined up an all-day web-a-thon, an Instagram photo contest, and a few specials for membership. One of them is for a GoPro camera, where for the price of the camera ($300) you get a GoPro HD Hero 2 and a Surfrider membership, t-shirt, backpack, leash, sunscreen, wax, and a magazine subscription.
